Today was the day…

Mike did some waterproofing. It’s a public holiday in South Africa, so Courage didn’t come and Mike got stuck into putting some stuff on the roof so the rain stops dripping into the piano room.

This is what he was doing…

And this was his view…

When rain comes tomorrow, we’ll see if it worked.

I had some work, but not as busy as most Mondays. It turned out to be a sunny day. We went down to Echo a short while ago – although no one worked today. I’ve got these comparison photos…Mike looking up at the lower ground floor that was just completed…

And today….

One day at a time.

Luke 21:15

I will give you the right words and such wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to reply or refute you.

The best is yet to come.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,
